Poetry by Aram Saroyan

Words & Cello

Two multidisciplinary artists come together for one night of poetry and music. The poet, novelist, and playwright Aram Saroyan has been widely regarded for his minimalist poetry, and immunobiologist and cellist Georgia Lill moves from the laboratory to the recording studio with ease. Saroyan, the author of Made in L.A. 2016’s subtitle—a, the, though, only—reads a selection of his poems and longer poetic anthems, accompanied by Lill’s musical improvisations. 

Production concept by Gailyn Saroyan. Directed by Vaneh Assadourian.
